I am in one of those moods where I am cranky. Is there a full moon? There is a lot going on at work that makes me uncomfortable. Antsy. Conflicted. Unsure. Apprehensive. Nervous. It is only natural that the negativity crosses over into my personal affairs. If I get through today, I should be okay for another week.
On a happier note, its May! This month brings not only lovely sunshine and warmer weather but it brings a month of delicious activity. In approximately three weeks I leave for Ireland. I have two travel books that I have barely touched. Somehow I have a feeling that the family I am traveling to meet will provide enormous entertainment for us. I have on my "must see" list, the Blarney Castle, Woodfield (the old family estate), and The cliffs of Moher. My sister tells me we should rent a car and see the magic of the country by just driving. (good advice, bad advice)?
Mother's day is Sunday and Bridget is taking me to see George Carlin as a gift. The gift of laughter. My favorite gift.
Also, my cousin from Penn and her husband are coming to town to see my Mom and her Mom, who has arrived for a lengthily stay with my Mom. This coming weekend should be a blast.
There is a reunion of sorts at my High School. Once a year they throw a Spring Fling and all the alumni come to dance and partake of the open bar. Catholic, don't ya know. That is being held this month.
Added to that, my company is celebrating their 100th anniversary of existence in this fair city. A swanky affair at Keeneland with a jazz band, food and semiformal attire. I love to dress up and play Cinderella every once in a while.
Last, but not least, is the Taste of the Bluegrass event that takes place also at Keeneland which is an event that I look forward to every year. All the restaurants and related industries show themselves and their specialties off in one evening of great fun and overindulgence.
Interspersed are several runs, one at the Louisville Zoo! How can I feel blue with so much to look forward to?
